Here is our first fact sheet about arthritis- includes facts and figures about arthritis and the work of Arthritis New Zealand. It shows that 647,000 New Zealand adults are now affected by the condition and the numbers will increase in the future.-these numbers come from Ministry of Health data.

Figures on arthritis can be found at https://minhealthnz.shinyapps.io/nz-health-survey-2016-17-annual-data-explorer/_w_39301bfc/#!/home by choosing ‘explore topics’, choosing ‘other health conditions’ and then selecting the form of arthritis you are interested in.

If you would like copies of this fact sheet call 0800663463 - we are keen that they be extensively used.
